  2. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures. Tools have a composite-compatible Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), provide tight tolerances, are free-standing, and are of affordable cost. For BMDS applications Green-AeroSM offers both improved per ...

  5. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs). The NWRA team has developed an extensive HF propagation computational tool set, which includes a capability called APEx (Automated Point Extraction) for automatically finding vertical ionogram (VI) traces within an ionogram image. APEx does not require pre-separation of the O ...

  6. Influence of Long-range Ionospheric and Atmospheric Effects on Surveillance and Communication Systems

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151154

    ABSTRACT:Abstract: Electromagnetic signals used in communications and sensor systems can be seriously impacted after propagation through a region of the atmosphere or ionosphere disturbed by turbulence. This work will develop new physics-based technology that calculates EM propagation from HF to laser frequencies, including the effects of turbulence with long correlation length in the direction of ...

  7. Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: To produce high dielectric strength insulator materials, our approach, called Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength (OAHDS), will optimize fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing in order to fabricate high density parts. Currently, thermoplastics 3D printed via FFF have dielectric strengths one to three orders of magnitude lower than injection molded parts ma ...

  8. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  9. Lateral Flow Immunoassay for Rapid Detection of Borrelia burgdorferi from Ticks

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: DHP15006

    Lyme disease is a vector-borne illness caused by infection with B. burgdorferi. Hard ticks (Ixodes spp.) acquire the spirochete from a natural reservoir of small mammals; transmission to humans occurs via the bite of an infected tick. By any measure, Lyme disease is one of the most serious emerging infectious diseases that threaten public health in the United States. New estimates from the CDC ind ...
